I have actually done multiple Gulf color schemes on Ford GT bodies, and just finished my first VTA body in a Gulf livery (pics up soon). I used the Tamiya light blue and tamiya orange. I have also used the flourescent orange without backing, or backing with a darker color to get the right hue. Fortunately i have a real Ford GT painted up in the heritage (gulf) colors, so i can compare nicely! The blue is a little bit darker, but the orange is spot on. I have been able to lighten the blue by painting very lightly then backing with white.

I'll post up some pictures of it compared with the real thing soon!

I posted it in the other VTA thread, but here's my Gulf livery Inspired Camaro, I used Tamiya PS-3 Light Blue and Tamiya PS-24 Flourescent Orange

The flash makes the blue look a little lighter than it actually is. But it's close enough.

If you have an airbrush Parma makes a transparent black labeled Fastint Black



On another note , I am just getting into the on-road side of the hobby and starting out with 17.5 blinky TC . After seeing all the nice paint jobs of the muscle cars I really want to get into VTA as well !!
